60.3. Herminiinae 

Small to medium-sized (20–40 mm wingspan) moths with relatively broad wings and narrow bodies. Th ey are defined on the basis of several internal and tympanal structures. Many species have distinctive secondary male sexual organs occurring on almost any part of the body, including swellings on the antennae and hair brushes on the palps or legs. The larvae feed mainly on fungus on dead leaves in various states of decomposition, but diets range from fungus to living vascular plant material. A few species feed on other material including dead insects, dried fruit, and dung.

The Herminiinae  occur worldwide, with the main diversity in the tropics. Approximately 100 species in 20 genera occur in North America. Sixteen species (including at least one undescribed) in nine genera occur in AB. Th e subfamily is need of revision. The only recent taxonomic work on the group is a revision of the genus Macrochilo ( Ferguson 1982)  . Most AB species were treated by Forbes (1954).

60.4. Pangraptinae 

A group of relatively small (20 – 30 mm wingspan) moths, with broad, slightly scalloped wings. Only recently recognized as a valid family-group (see summary in Lafontaine and Schmidt in press), Pangraptinae  currently contains only two species in two genera in North America, with additional species in Pangrapta  (likely representing multiple unrecognized genera) in the Old World tropics. Only Pangrapta decoralis  , the type-species of the genus, occurs in AB.

60.5. Rivulinae 

Small (15–20 mm wingspan), broad-winged nocturnal moths. Th e subfamily is defined mainly by larval characters, but adults also have unique microsculpturing of the proboscis. Although this group was included in the Hypeninae  by Kitching and Rawlins (1999), Fibiger and Lafontaine (2005) placed the rivulines in their own subfamily, as they share no derived characters with the Hypeninae  . Unlike many of the other primitive quadrifine groups, the larvae feed on living vascular plants.

There are relatively few Rivulinae  species globally; a number of species in the genus Rivula  are found worldwide. Nine species in three genera occur in North America, one of which occurs in AB. The group is in need of revision, but the sole AB species was treated by Forbes (1954) and Covell (1984).

60.6. Hypeninae 

A relatively small subfamily of medium-sized (30–50 mm wingspan) moths with broadly triangular (deltoid) forewings and elongate palps. Adults of several AB species are sexually dimorphic. Several species hibernate and overwinter as adults. The group is defined by a unique set of larval characters ( Beck 1999 – 2000). Some larvae are semiloopers. Th ey feed on various vascular plants.

Hypeninae  occur worldwide. In North America, the subfamily is comprised of about 30 species, all but one in the genus Hypena  . Eight species in two genera occur in AB. Most of the species listed here were treated by Forbes (1954).

60.7. Scoliopteryginae 

Medium-sized (40–70 mm wingspan), robust moths, often with prominent ‘beaked’ palps and a sinuate forewing anal margin. Th e proboscis of adults is modified with tearing hooks for piercing fruit. This subfamily was previously treated as a subgroup of the Calpinae  (Lafontaine and Schmidt in press).

This group is most widespread and has the greatest species richness in the tropical regions of the world. Eleven species occur in North America. A diagnosis of the single species occurring in AB was treated by Forbes (1954) and Covell (1984).
